Both sides find themselves in somewhat unexpected positions going into this match of the World Cup.
England, the favourites to win the tournament, won their opening match against South Africa but surprisingly lost to Pakistan – a loss made more surprising given that England beat them in an ODI series just recently. Bangladesh meanwhile pulled the first upset of the tournament when they too beat South Africa (SA also lost their third game to India), but lost to New Zealand.
Thus, after good starts both teams stumbled at the next hurdle, making this game even more important.
England v Bangladesh is on Sky Main Event and Sky Cricket at 10.00 (play starts 10.30).
